01[12:06] {@Threei}  European and US equities have been volatile today as traders try to sort out the chances of a Greece deal today. In addition, there was a possible break in the West Coast port strike, which appears to have helped pull the S&P500 off its lows.
01[12:06] {@Threei}  EUR/USD has made a round trip from 1.1360 to 1.1280 and back again on rapid-fire headlines ahead of the latest negotiating session. Finance ministers sounded cautiously optimistic heading into today's Eurogroup meeting, with Greece Finance Minister Varoufakis asserting that a deal would be reached today.
01[12:06] {@Threei}  Note there were amusing reports in the German press that Greece's midweek offer was "sent in error" and that their real position would meet even more concessions demanded by the EU.
01[12:06] {@Threei}  yeah, we noted... and were amused
01[12:07] {@Threei}  In some quarters, there appears to be an emerging consensus that if Greece did exit the eurozone, the financial impact on the rest of Europe would be manageable. This consensus is reflected in German media reports. Today Der Spiegel reported that the ECB was making preparations for a Greek exit
